Potters wheel classes at Studiomade
Working with clay on the potters wheel and creating unique works with various decorating techniques is where it begins at StudioMade Pottery classes in Geelong. Our Pottery Classes are designed for differing levels of ability, from beginners through to mid and upper levels of experience. We welcome new students as well as being proud of the fact that many of our current students re-enrol from term to term as they learn to experience clay at a more advanced skill set.
During the 8 week block of pottery classes students develop their potters wheel skills as they develop an understanding of the clay medium. Students begin by practicing potters wheel basics - from centering the clay on the potters wheel and with tuition and practice will inevitably develop a personal style over the term block. Individual pieces of pottery are produced on the pottery wheel and students are taught hand decorating, glazing and finishes to produce unique works.
Darren McGinn,a practicing artist and teacher with more than 30 years in the industry, teaches in an atmosphere that is both supportive and critically constructive.

At StudioMade you are your own curriculum, individual expression and creativity is encouraged as you hone and develop your skills working with clay .Class sizes are small, allowing ample time for each individual with loads of inspiration and encouragement along the way.
